Janet - Beating Buspirone withdrawal symptoms

SIGNS OF BUSPIONE DEPENDENCY 

Buspirone is widely prescribed for many conditions, particularly anxiety and dependence to other addictive drugs. Buspirone binds to central dopamine receptors, therefore raising the question about its potential to cause acute and chronic changes to dopamine neurological function (dystonia, pseudo-parkinsonism, akathisia and tardive dyskinesia) and a small fraction of people do experience a syndrome of restlessness, at times appearing after beginning treatment or worsening into Buspirone withdrawal symptoms. [5] Initial signs of Buspirone dependence is an increase in anxiety, twitching or pins and needle sensations, nausea and headaches.*

WHAT IS BUSPIONE WITHDRAWAL LIKE? 

The common Buspirone Withdrawal Symptoms are anxiety, agitation, irritability, nausea and headaches.  While some can easily come off Buspirone, others experience significant alterations to their brain chemistry on Buspirone and an increase in symptoms as they lessen the drug.  It is always best to taper off Buspirone slowly.  If you would like to discuss how to taper off Buspirone safely, contact our team of professionals.

BUSPIRONE WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS MAY INCLUDE


The syndrome of withdrawal from sedative/hypnotic/anxiolytic drugs can appear as any combination of irritability, anxiety, agitation, insomnia, tremor, abdominal cramps, muscle cramps, vomiting, sweating, flu-like symptoms without fever, and occasionally, even as seizures.*

Buspirone is an FDA-approved anti-anxiety agent and Buspirone withdrawal symptoms can be uncomfortable, even with a slow taper. Buspirone works to influence the activity of neurotransmitters in the brain, including dopamine and serotonin. Buspirone is often prescribed for long-term treatment and patients are often unprepared for the Buspirone Withdrawal Symptoms.  This is why we take a holistic approach to the tapering process, both teaching each client how to taper off Buspirone safely, but also incorporating the use of calming nutraceuticals to help minimize the withdrawal and assist the nervous system in recovery.*

[9] The most common Buspirone withdrawal symptoms are headaches, dizziness, nervousness and lightheadedness. However, we can teach you how to taper off Buspirone safely which can reduce symptoms and help you get off Buspirone successfully.*

    BUSPIRONE SIDE EFFECTS AND ADVERSE REACTIONS 

     

    Because buspirone can bind to central dopamine receptors, a question has been raised about its potential to cause acute and chronic changes in dopamine-mediated neurological function (eg, dystonia, pseudo-parkinsonism, akathisia, and tardive dyskinesia). Clinical experience in controlled trials has failed to identify any significant neuroleptic-like activity; however, a syndrome of restlessness, appearing shortly after initiation of treatment, has been reported in some small fraction of buspirone-treated patients. The syndrome may be explained in several ways. For example, buspirone may increase central noradrenergic activity; alternatively, the effect may be attributable to dopaminergic effects (ie, represent akathisia).*

    Buspar Adverse Reactions May Include:
    dizziness, nausea, headache, nervousness, lightheadedness, and excitement*


    Associated with Discontinuation of Treatment One guide to the relative clinical importance of adverse events associated with BuSpar is provided by the frequency with which they caused drug discontinuation during clinical testing. Approximately 10% of the 2200 anxious patients who participated in the BuSpar premarketing clinical efficacy trials in anxiety disorders lasting 3 to 4 weeks discontinued treatment due to an adverse event. The more common events causing discontinuation included: central nervous system disturbances (3.4%), primarily dizziness, insomnia, nervousness, drowsiness, and lightheaded feeling; gastrointestinal disturbances (1.2%), primarily nausea; and miscellaneous disturbances (1.1%), primarily headache and fatigue. In addition, 3.4% of patients had multiple complaints, none of which could be characterized as primary*
